The Army, Air Force and paramilitary forces have done a Herculean job of coming to the aid of marooned people in the unprecedented floods that have devastated J and K. Prime MInister Narendra Modi responded without delay. Lakhs of people have been saved and evacuated. As the water recedes, there is apprehension of an epidemic. Food and other life support items have been damaged, houses which remained submerged in 20 feet of water have to be repaired extensively and the communication system needs to be established as it is essential for connectivity with the needy. Huge funds are needed to rehabilitate the people hit by the tragedy. It is heartening to note that the whole of India is helping them.
